Simmonds can't protect the puck on the boards, can't finish easy chances w/ his hands of stone, and can't set people up either. He's like Hartnell but without all the redeeming qualities. Danny really needs a good cycling forward w/ a bit of skill (in the mold of Hartnell) to be at his best and Simmonds hasn't been playing that role well @ all this year. I hope we give JVR-Schenn-Briere a chance when Schenn returns in the next week or so...
Danny is kind of one dimensional player (one can compare him to a WR in football) and needs someone with multilevel skills to compliment him- set him up, be able to cover more defencively etc. Therefore, I think Voracek or Schenn (if Briere moves to the wing) would have been good partners for Danny. I wish Lavi would explore this opportunity.
